in restrain themselves to do more than their duty. capitalism has worked well in america, and we should be thankful. it has only worked well because we have the government guided by a constitution that proscribes legitimate, necessary limits. in so far as government obeys those limits, capitalism will survive. and we will prosper. i find america to be a nation by a large among nations in the world not much in need of prayer. we are prosperous, we're happy, we're living, we are gentle, we are kind. we have risked our own peace to defend the freedoms of others. we are a good mission. here is my prayer for america. i pray that america should have a government that is smart enough to know the goodness of its people, in a decent enough to respected. in respect it by restraining itself.

's look at the democratic primary voters. they are not the heartbeat of america. political parties -- they have certain beliefs. they are allowed to have beliefs. we have a large chunk of middle america -- they are not the same. the people who serve in the house and senate have ideology. we have resolution among these differences. but with 40 votes in the senate, 177 in the house, those people who have survived are not -- they are the people who feel most strongly about the size of government and we are not going to vote for these bills. olympia snowe is a good example. she has a great feeling about the center in maine. we have seen this since 1978. this number, this is 176. the republican vote came after 2018. he was with the leadership because he would not be there for 218. the public auction is the same thing that means that this is too much government health care. this is not acceptable for what we think should happen. mitt romney passed a mandate, and it said, you do not need this for public out -- for a public auction -- public option. >> is it possible for a president to hav

generation. that's why this museum is such an important part of who we are as a people in america. and that's why that legacy was handed off to my brothers and me, influenced all of us, everyone of us served in the military. not because we're more patriotic than the next-door neighbor, but it was part of who we are. it was part of who my parents were. every one of my uncles served in world war ii. the media today is full of stories about how desperate the situation is in afghanistan. i had brought with me for a five different newspapers, all of which have a story here on page one or about how bad things are in afghanistan. you can take the word afghanistan out of the article and two years ago the word would have been iraq. well, guess what? they won the war in iraq. soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and marine in the united states of america won that war. and yet you would not know that from the media, because as soon as the war turned around they stopped covering it. and today all the bad news is coming out of afghanistan. i would like to remind young people who didn't have that blessin

health care? about health care in america? >> about the coverage of it? well, the coverage of it really, contradictory answers. there has been a lot of superficial coverage, the kind of he said, she said coverage, of who the nationalities -- of to the personalities are, an issue that is substantive and like health care. paradoxically, some of the best coverage i have seen has come in these newspapers, that we say are dinosaurs. "the washington post," "the new york times," have often comes done a brilliant job of putting into context the different aspects of health care, whether it is the role of the insurance company, the doctors, etc., how they match, that type of thing, has been done in ways that i think are odd-inspiring by some of the writers and "the washington post" and "the new york times." >> the reason why we conduct that type of coverage is because newspapers can see this issue coming along, and they assign teams of reporters who immersed themselves in an issue, as opposed to getting the he said, see said-she said, that the things. that only a large well-funded news organizati

their religious part of their message but early on they were one of the strongest anti-catholic voices in america and they went all in in in the end they worked with the nixon campaign against him so i will cover the two basic things i learned as we go through that campaign. i'm going to read a couple of passages some point you to three scenes and we will see how far we get that one has to do with billy graham's work on behalf of nixon and kennedy. the second one is a vignette from kennedy's used in speech where there was this crisis in the campaign greifeld lucky heads is the confronted a group of protestant ministers and went to houston and the last one is set in nashville, tennessee where one of the most prominent clergymen, baxter was an icon in the church of christ preached an anti-catholic sermon and hattie congressman rebutter this armand immediately after was delivered which you can imagine both had front-page stories on monday, just the average is violation of all kinds of southern taboos and rebutting an iconic on his own pulpit was quite extraordinarily so i will probably do that one.
of one of america's greatest warriors, general george s patton. he actually hand-delivered it back to vienna where it resides to this day. >> in so far at hitler imagined himself establishing a 1,000-year riek and this was the holy roman emper are and there was the german emperor of the 19th century, it's possible hitler thought of his empire as the successor to each of these other ones. and insofar as his regalia, somehow his possession of these things would legitimize his reik as a lawful possessor of all of the other emperors. >> it dates back to the 13th century, although they believe the polish artifact is merely a replica of the vienna lance. there are many theories how each object claiming to be the holy lance were acquired and they have one group of people that claim their lance is truly anointed with the blood of jesus. but perhaps thea thenty tisty is not as important as the message it provides for christians. >> when you take a look what relics are, it's important to distinguish between what is superstition, meaning the object itself has power, and what is respect for th

"death to america" on the floor of their parliament. jamie: thank you very much, caroline shively. kelly: in afghanistan, president karzai is calling on the taliban and other rich remiss groups to lay down their weapons and help rebuild the country. the appeal comes days after taliban leader omar posted a statement on the internet to ruling out talks with the afghan government, and calling on followers to cut ties with his administration. karzai also reached out to his main rival in afghanistan's fraud-marred presidential election, but stopped short of offering a statement in support of the government. jamie: the governor of afghanistan's kandahar province survived an assassination attempt. this is one of the country's most volatile areas. militants armed with a remote- control bomb blew out a window of the governor's vehicle. he was headed to prayers marking the muslim holiday. one police officer was injured in that incident. kelly: we continue to track the h1n1 virus. health officials in korea as well as the u.s. now reporting cases of double infections. that is when a person contracts
america is near and dear to my heart and i would love to contribute to this field of research. okay, so these are just some of the responses that we've received about this book. and it's clear that it's touched a nerve and i figure should hear it because they were ever going to have a conversation and really get serious about small-town america than it has to start somewhere. let me just lay out some of the background to what we see as wide alice matters as what is in many ways a typical small town. and what we can sort of do going forward into the future. between 1982 and 2000, over 800 nonmetropolitan counties just like the one we're in right now lost 10% or more of the population to outmigration. now this is not natural decrease. this is people actually leaving. okay, between 2200 and 2005, over 800 wirral counties lost 10% or more of the population again. and in those same counties, there were more deaths than births. the median age in these places has also risen pretty dramatically. so that would lead us to conclude that people who are leaving are young and in most cases although w
to chime in with one final question john mueller in the last panel claimed that america goes in search of monsters and over in place but perthe threats in a way that endangers american policy. we heard american policy makers talking about strategy. i do not think once we heard about domestic politics, into the discussion. i wonder if there is a link between those two in the sense -- john mueller did not go over this -- you have to go over domestic consensus. one thing that consumes america in the post-cold war is how to maintain the domestic consensus. it was central in the 1989 era when bush felt he had to keep nato ally to sustain that u.s. presence. the planning guidance at the end of bush, 41, there were talking about defense cuts but they strategy was to put a limit on those cuts so that would go down so low. after 9/11, how do you mobilize this country around the threat that this is a single attack? that may have been what it was. it is needed to mobilize the country to prevent these kind of things. is that the case? are you really discussing new strategy concessions? how will t
